The most popular place in Ephesus from Bodrum – Celsius Library

An amazing picture of the ruins of magnificent structures that are world famous will appear before your eyes. For example, the facade of the Library of Celsus, which flaunts on the covers of all travel booklets and magazines.

Or the grandiose construction of the Great Amphitheater, photographs of which serve as illustrations for numerous periodicals and books on historical subjects. The monumental building of this three-storey ancient theater was built on a hill at the foot of Mount Panair.

Therefore, from the upper rows of its auditorium, you can enjoy the majestic panorama of the entire archaeological complex of Ephesus and its environs.

Ephesus Amphitheater – Construction Ideology

The Roman emperor Nero liked to personally perform on the stage, and so that even more spectators could admire his acting talent, he ordered the construction of the second tier of the Ephesian theater. And its third tier was erected by order of Nero’s successor, Emperor Galba.

You will be able to see a large theatrical stage, which has been well preserved from that time almost in its original form. It represents an important cultural value and has a high architectural significance as the main element of the theatrical building.

The amphitheater was decorated with a series of decorative columns and many sculptural monuments, which were located in niches. Graceful bas-reliefs are of great artistic importance – almost all the walls of the amphitheater are decorated with them. The beauty and complexity of execution still remain a mystery of modern archeology.

In a fully completed form, which the amphitheater acquired during the reign of the Roman emperor Trajan, the auditorium of the theater had a diameter of fifty meters. And on its rows up to twenty-five thousand spectators could simultaneously accommodate.

Important buildings of Ephesus

You will see other impressive sights of Ephesus. Among them is the Odeon, a building for meetings of the city senate. It is also called the Maly Theater – it was built to relieve the main Amphitheater.

Also, you will see the ruins of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world – the temple of the goddess Artemis of Ephesus. And yet, the ruins of the agora are the places of city meetings and a large center of trade. Merchants from all over the empire came here, and also, there was a slave market where the slave trade flourished.

You will be able to see the ruins of the Temple of the Emperor Hadrian, the architectural ensemble called “Houses on the Hillside”, the Public House and the remains of the building of Prytaneus – this is an ancient municipality.

Nearby are the remains of the Basilica of St. John, where the Apostle John the Theologian served and wrote the fourth book of the New Testament – the Gospel of John. Here, the holy apostle of Christ John Chrysostom spent the last days of his life and was buried. It was a large two-storey basilica with columns and eleven mosaic domes.

House of the Blessed Virgin Mary

In addition to all these interesting objects, you can visit the restored Catholic chapel, which is located in the House of the Virgin. The Blessed Virgin Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, lived here.

In Islam, she is called Maryam bint Imran, and is revered as the mother of the Islamic prophet Isa, so there is also the Holy Quran in the chapel. At different times, three popes came here from the Vatican – in 1967 Pope Paul VI, in 1979 Pope John Paul II and Benedict XVI in 2006.

Near the house of the Virgin Mary there is a holy spring and a wall of desires, where you can leave a note with a sincere request for the fulfillment of your most cherished desires.
